. if a crisis can be averted. if democrats and republicans can come to an agreement on the big fight that has been frankly smothering american politics for weeks now. president obama announced earlier today that he wants to see a deal done by tomorrow on the big debt ceiling fight that has consumed every bit of oxygen in d.c. for the last few months. the president saying tonight that congressional leaders are on the clock. they have 24 to 36 hours to get a deal done. as planning a vote that the u.s. government should not default on our debt and shut down comes down to the wire, we are inching close enough to the edge here that two of the world's major credit rating agencies have warned that our national credit rating may be downgraded as a result of this standoff. the day that the u.s. would actually hit the debt ceiling and start going into default and shutting down is august 2. but this does not mean that we have until august 2 before we lose our national credit rating. that could just happen right now. because of the uncertainty and because of how long it is taking to get this done. right

connell has proposed a deal to allow the debt ceiling to go up and take cuts to the big three off the table. mcconnell late today put out his last chance plan. >> i would advocate that we pass legislation giving the president the authority, the authority to request of us an increase in the debt ceiling that would take us past the end of his term. that is what he has said. he said he will not sign a debt ceiling that does not take us past the end of his term. >> so mcconnell's plan would allow republicans to vote against the debt increase, but it would allow the president to increase the debt. the downside for the righties? cuts to the big three would be off the table. that's been their mission all along. the tea party jumped all over mcconnell, right wing blogger eric rashgson said mitch mcconnell is making a historic capitulation. consider sending mcconnell a weasel. john boehner is on board with the senate leader mcconnell. he ran over to fox news and did major cya. >> i think everybody believe there is needs to be a backup plan if we cannot come to an agreement, and i think mitch has don

tough choices for a big budget deal. today he said without a deal there may not be enough money to send out social security checks. for many republicans in congress, opposing tax has become more than ideology. it's become religion. they're abdicating now their responsibility to co-govern. how are we ever going to get a deal if republican leaders more afraid of the tea party than they are of the economic collapse to come? >>> also, pray away the gay. michele bachmann's husband says the christian counseling practice he runs does not try to pray gay straight, but the video tells a different story. this may make michele bachmann more popular with her base, but what after everyone else? >>> plus, the murdoch scandal keeps getting bigger and bigger. gordon brown told the bbc that murdoch people used known criminals to get access to his personal information and try to bring down his government. the story has now hit the "sunday times" of london and his company stock is sinking. how bad will this get? jon stewart and british ex-pass had fun, a lot of fun, actually, with the murdoch story. that'

in washington. leading off tonight, too big to fail? here are the two things to take away from mitch mcconnell's offer. one we are no longer looking at democrats versus republicans or liberals versus conservatives. this is a fight between the leaders and protesters, people who are responsible for america's financial health and those who never have to worry about an election. second, money talks, b.s. walks. when major financial groups told the gop that default was not an option, they suddenly saw the light. as phil graham once said -- -- we learned that many on the right only pretend to care about the debt. what they care about is shrinking government and lowering taxes. tonight we're going to put a spot light on the unsupported republican claim that somewhat higher taxes for the better off means fewer jobs for everyone. also, the rupert murdoch scandal has claimed another victim. murdoch has dropped his bid to buy british sky broadcasting tonight. will it threaten his holdings here in the states? >>> the latest poll on republicans may show that mitt romney is in more trouble than we th

in this country, if we don't meet our bills, do we get into big trouble, or don't we? some people are holding out and saying, this isn't a problem we can slither through this thing. where are you on that? >> no. i think it is a problem. in fact, you know, we have slowly stair stepped our way into this mess and certainly wing the gop caucus, right on right crime perpetrated there with the different messages and you know, who's on top of who? who's the leading voice today? done nothing more than muddled the debate for a lot 69 american people right now. you're seeing it begin to reflect in the polls. beginning to see it reflect amongst some of the other members of the caucus who are just sick and tired of not getting to a point of resolution. so i think that there are very serious people there beginning to step up with the party on both sides, quite frankly, to move the participants to a point where we can actually begin to get something done. i think, chris, there will be a deal done. the question is, right now, what exactly does it look like, and who's prepared to stand before the american people
was left at the alter. speaker boehner has pulled out of the negotiations for the big deal that would cut the deficit and raise the debt ceiling all at the same time. that negotiation is apparently over. in a letter to his colleagues speaker boehner makes his sides of the case "a deal was never reached, it was never really close. in the end we couldn't connect. the president is emphatic that taxes have to be raised. as a former small businessman i know taxes destroy jobs." which it means as of now that august 2nd deadline continues to approach. there is no deal to raise the debt ceiling, no deal to cut spending. what happens now? president obama saying he has asked tomorrow morning at 11 a.m. he wants to see boehner, nancy pelosi, harry reid and mitch mcconnell all at the white house to talk about what happens next. he says as of now time is running out and there is no way to make the big deal so he is willing to sign a small deal. extension through 2013. he will talk about that with the house and senate leaders tomorrow. so that's all for 9news now right now at 6 p.m. now if you want to
earth there. and i'm a big space geek. i love that. we'll see you back here tomorrow. "in the arena" starts right now. >>> good evening and welcome. i'm tom foreman. tonight we are getting mixed signals about a possible back room deal on the debt ceiling just hours away from what president obama at least at one point called a deadline for a decision. "the new york times" says president obama and the republican speaker of the house john boehner are close to an agreement. roughly it would involve $3 trillion in cuts and an eventual overhaul of the entire tax system. here's the catch, though. other sources are shooting down the idea that this is even happening as fast and hard as they can. listen to boehner himself earlier today on rush limbaugh's radio show. >> rush, there is no deal. no deal publicly, no deal privately. there is absolutely no deal. >> no deal, no deal, no deal. now, here's the white house spokesman jay carney. >> there is no deal. we are not close to a deal. we are -- obviously, the president is in discussions with all the leaders of congress as well as other members

to look at it. if i can dial out for a minute and give you a big picture perspective, despite this tit for tat and all this political spinning going on, there is still a meeting scheduled at the white house tomorrow, as far as we san antonknow, all sides are planning to come here and they will be discussing detailed spending cuts and for the first time, this discussion of tax changes. will there be revenue on the table, a major controversial issue. despite all this, there could still be potential progress towards one of these deals tomorrow. we'll see. >> you answered my last question. we'll check back with you later on. they might want to start with decaf tomorrow. >> let's go to our top story now. this is an important thing for all of us to be aware of. this in-depth look at the rupert murdoch scandal as it begins to reverberate in america. we thought it might and indeed it has. murdoch withdrew his bid for bskyb amid the most disturbing allegations that emerged. according to a british paper, journalists from the news of the world approached a new york private investigator to buy pho
